We are delighted to announce that renowned local artist – Mel Langton will be supporting the artists as our Artist Liaison. Mel has a wealth of knowledge and experience having worked on every trail within Lincoln. 

“I’m very fortunate to have been chosen to create artwork for a number of previous art trails within Lincolnshire, starting with the Baron’s Charter Trail back in 2015 and more recently the Lincoln Imps Trail. I’m incredibly excited for the 2022 Heart Trail and for seeing what amazing designs are created by the artists involved. I really hope this trail will help to put Lincolnshire on the map for visitors next year, along with raising a huge amount of money for a fantastic cause.”
